What is the difference between Organic, Biodynamic and Natural Wines?
In a day and age where people want to know how and where their food is grown, caught, bred and harvested it only makes sense that they would also like to know what’s going into their bottle of wine and how its been made.
Organic, Natural and Biodynamic wines are nothing new, but as we become more conscious consumers, their popularity is growing.
We here at Smashing Wines specialize in promoting small producers who respect the environment and their vineyards, concentrating on producing natural, biodynamic and organic wines. We believe that winemaking in this way leads to a naturally superior product.
So here’s a little bit of information to help you differentiate between these methods of wine growing….
Organic Wine is made from grapes that are grown organically; which excludes the use of artificial chemical pesticides, fertilizers, fungicides and herbicides. Organic wine producers will use sulphites, but in much lower quantities than in conventional wine production. Organic yeasts and stabilisers are allowed during fermentation and production.
